Considers accuracy of Navy preliminary unit procurement cost estimate, program affordability and impact on other Navy shipbuilding programs, which shipyard or shipyards will build SSBN(X)s, impact of UK preferences for its SSBN on U.S. design options, and Congressional access to SSBN(X) analysis of alternatives. Reviews options for Congress and legislative activity for FY2011.
